Contact lenses are far better today than they were five to ten years ago. With new materials and designs, virtually anybody can wear them. The daily disposable modality is among the more unique types of contact lenses that we fit at Normandy Optical. These lenses are especially great for children, those with seasonal allergies, and those who only wear contacts occasionally (socially, for sports, dance, etc.). Other unique contacts we fit include those approved by the FDA for 30 days of continuous wear, bifocal contact lenses, and contacts designed to help those with dry eye.
Regardless of what brand or type of contact lens you wear (excluding daily disposable), they require proper care to maintain a healthy cornea and reduce your risk of eye infections.

If you have any questions regarding contacts that you currently wear or are interested in trying them for the first time, Dr. Wojton will be glad to discuss which type or brand may be best for you.

(After having gone to my eye doctor twice to check that my prescription was correct), I had my glasses re-made according to your prescription and I no longer need to read in large print. I am comfortable using the computer and can read 12-point font. I am so appreciative of your help and concern and expertise. Life is “lookin’ good” (pun intended). Thank you very much.
